Note: During August I am giving myself permission to be a little less strict with the calories, and exercise. It’s my birthday present to myself for the month.

Daily Goal: Forget last week. Get back on track.

Calories – 1718 (or more)

Steps – 22,637

Progress on the Road from Rauros to Mt Doom (I’m going with Frodo and Sam after the breaking of the fellowship) – 122.71 of 470 miles. Day 6. Air is “black and heavy to breathe.” Wisps of lights begin to appear: “candles of corpses.” Sam falls, sees dead faces in the water. Hear cry of Nazgûl. Gollum cowers and refuses to go on until moon is low.
